Peoria, Arizona selects Comverge for demand response
By leveraging Comverge's demand response expertise, the city was able to curtail its consumption at multiple facilities over the two-year period
Norcross, Ga., April 2, 2012 — Comverge, Inc., provider of energy management solutions for residential, commercial and industrial customers, assisted the city of Peoria's Jomax and Beardsley Water Reclamation Facilities successfully participate in the 2010 and 2011 Arizona Public Service Peak Solutions programs.
Launched in 2010, the APS Peak Solutions program helps C&I businesses earn additional revenues by reducing electricity load on peak event days.
For Peoria's Jomax and Beardsley facilities, Comverge engineers worked with members of the public works utilities department to design a demand response system tailored to their individual needs.
This included shutting down agitation blowers and sanitizing UV lights during times of peak demand, both of which helped reduce energy consumption without dramatically affecting operations.
